5.0 out of 5 stars Garth, Genius Dec 16 2010
Format:Audio CD
Garth was the man who created all the musical mixes that made The Band one of the originators of blending all the music genres into Rock and Roll. His choice of songs on this album is great and the fact that all the talent on the album is Canadian shows that the genius hasn't lost it. I grew up with Richard Manuel in Stratford and appreciate The Band and all their music and Richard's place in The Band's history and success. Garth, thanks for bringing back the music of The Band and a friend. For anyone who is a fan of The Band and Canadian artists this cd is a must in your library. Once again thanks to Garth for this excellent cd and the Genius lives on. Buy it, you won't be disappointed!

4.0 out of 5 stars Unusual songs, great interpretations Dec 24 2010
By harm
Format:Audio CD
It's time to get a compilation that focuses on some of the best songs that are somehow forgotten on most other compilations. Bruce Cockburn's version of Sleeping is fantastic. Garth's signature keyboards grace every song, and the Canadians involved in this project deliver exceptional performances. It would have been a five star review if The Band hadn't already recorded these songs; their versions are still superior. Still it's refreshing to hear some of the songs that might otherwise have been forgotten.

5.0 out of 5 stars worshipping The Band! Dec 15 2010
Format:Audio CD
A tour de force through some of The Band's music - all performed by OTHER Candian musicians. Oh, and yes, the Master Garth Hudson is there on ALL tracks, too. Some really memorable moments, for instance Cowboy Junkies doing a wonderful version of a Basement Track song, Clothes Line Saga.
If you like me are still and forever and ever in love with this outfit that didn't need any fancy name other than simply THE Band, then this celebration is also for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Canadian Celebration of The Band Nov. 20 2010
By enoch
Format:Audio CD
I agree totally with J. Sakamoto in the Toronto Star 10/11/20 "a fine tribute album", especially 'This Wheel's on Fire' ...this muscular cover features no-frills drumming, uniquely extravagant keyboard fills courtesy of Garth Hudson, and the kind of go-for-broke vocals we have haven't heard from Neil Young since 'Rockin' in the Free World!" Garth Hudson took full advantage of the amazing sound-capture skills of Peter J. Moore.

1.0 out of 5 stars not what we expected Dec 29 2010
By obie1
Format:Audio CD
We were anxious to recieve this CD, but were certainly very disappointed by the content, it was painful to listen to the songs. Good songs all ruined by these supposed artists. This CD is good for the trash and a complete waste of money.
